Amazing Chris Lofton Story

The Dead Guy SECAnalyst IMay 2, 2008

All the talk at the beginning of the basketball season revolved around the struggles of Chris Lofton. He was shooting a miserable (for him) percentage and didn't seem to be in the flow of the games at all. It's only now been announced why...

Chris Lofton was diagnosed with testicular cancer the day the Vols lost to OSU in the Sweet 16 last March. While the Vols are one of the major teams in conference other schools love to hate, it's always been hard to dislike Lofton, who's one of the best shooters in SEC history.

The read on espn.com is long, but worth it, even if you're not a Vols fan.
